Is anyone else dissapointed with the field of engineering?

I assume my story isn’t much different from anyone else’s here. When I was growing up, I loved building things, taking things apart, and learning how everything worked. I especially had a fascination with space. I always dreamed of working for NASA or Boeing. So, engineering (mechanical to be exact) seemed like a natural choice when selecting a major in college.

However, I’ve been working for (4) years now and feel like the profession is a huge disappointment. It’s lots of staring at a computer, writing emails, and regurgitating formulas. It’s killed by imagination and creativity 100%. Sometimes, I wish I had gone into some science field like biology or physics where I could be in a lab or at least keep learning new things.

Does anyone else feel like this? How do you cope with the fact you'll have to settle for a job that doesn't at all resemble your dream job?
